Folks who are interested in developing a Rule of Life will gather on Sunday October 14 from 1-3 in the Meeting Room. The Society of Saint John the Evangelist, the Episcopal monastic order, has a workbook that helps people develop their own Rule of Life (https://www.ssje.org/growrule). They write on their website: “God, the Chief Gardener of our souls, invites us to grow into fullness of life. Just as stakes and lattices nurture the growth of young plants, so too can spiritual disciplines support the flourishing of our whole being. Explore a tool from monastic spirituality called a ‘Rule of Life’ to cultivate your relationships with God, Self, Others, and Creation.” Other folks may be interested in exploring being a lay companion to one of the 18 Episcopal Religious Orders (https://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/religious-orders-and-faith-communities) and adopting the lay version of their Rule of Life.
